it would be great if you can support the use case of user specifying its own config.
That's because most of the VPN providers are giving out ovpn ready to be used with --config.

Something like the following, paired with docker run option -v ~/myconfig.ovpn:/vpn/vpn.conf

It is already supported. The -v or VPN environment variable are completely optional. Without those set it doesn't try to configure the vpn on it's own.

The container does expect that the configuration will be in /vpn and that it will end in either .ovpn or .conf. If the CA cert isn't embedded it must be in the same /vpn directory and have a file name ending with .crt
